Description Kraig Spear 2017-10-02 13:42:59 UTC
1. Create a new blank iOS project
2. Create a new Storyboard / UIViewController
3. Open info.plist to set the startup interface
4. Select the desired item from the list

Run the project

Bug:

The selected item isn't the main interface, in fact, there is a crash.

Go back to the info.plist

Notice that there isn't an item selected.

The bug seems to be that if there isn't a key for UIMainStoryboardFile then it will not be created modified. 
If the key is added manually then everything works, and it can be updated.

It also might be a good idea to have QA test the project templates for oddities.
